Non-Executive Director Matching Service

NED Matching Service ()

This member service is designed to help support you with the recruitment of your non-executive directors (NEDs). 

We already have a database of existing and aspiring NEDs who we believe could make a great contribution to the sport and recreation sector.

We want to expand this list and so are asking all of our members to recommend any strong candidates who would be interested in hearing about other NED opportunities. They might be people from within your organisation or candidates who made the final stages of a recruitment process you conducted. Remember to get their permission to share their details.

Also, don’t forget that as a member of the Sport and Recreation Alliance you can advertise all of your open positions on our jobs board for free here, or you can email

“Using the Sport and Recreation Alliance's NED matching service was quick and easy, and considerably broadened our reach of potential candidates” (Jane Kracke, Strategic Lead – Service Delivery, Sport Across Staffordshire and Stoke-On-Trent). 

Looking to become a NED?

The aim of our NED matching service is to provide you with up to date job opportunities from the sport and recreation sector.

Once you have signed up, we will be sending out regular alerts (roughly once per month) highlighting the latest NED roles available.
